Donít be surprised when you instantly see the ranking points

Donít be surprised when you instantly see the ranking points for your favorite player soar on Monday morning.

No, you did not miss a major tournament during the month of December, but the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour has massively overhauled the ranking system.

The Sony Ericsson WTA Tourís new ranking system will go into effective on Monday, January 5. The new system will count 16 of a playerís best tournaments, compared to the 17 counted in 2008.

Points have doubled in value, which will cause a significant increase to the numbers accumulated by players in 2008.

New Top Ten Rankings for 2009

Re: Donít be surprised when you instantly see the ranking points

Are you sure about this? I know points are going up, but i thought more points were being awarded to grand slams... not just doubling everything, cause if thats the case its pointless to doubles the points of all tournies.....the result would be the same...

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

It is the same... they only did this so the points are still comparable to the ATP ranking

All the points have been doubled and it is now a system out of 16, not 17.

All the points are still proportionate. Serena is the same distance (result-wise) away from Jelena. (Actually closer since Jelena's 17th was erased). If Serena wins OZ and Jelena does not make the final, Serena is # 1. (Possibly closer if Serena does well at Sydney.)

The system has next to zero changes besides a few tweaks here and there to modify the system for new varying tiers (seen in the Premier 5s and Premier Non-Mandatories).

The numbers are just larger. It is the same exact system, just now of 16, not 17. The mandatories will become mandatory once they are played -- not retroactively.
